After weeks upon weeks of speculation – Call of Duty Vanguard was finally confirmed and now has a release date. Come November 5, 2021, players will get to experience Sledgehammer Games’ foray back into the WWII era and see what the studio has in store for them this time around.
Along with that, Activision has also confirmed a new Warzone “experience” coming later this year – which means plenty of more Call of Duty content, which is always good news for fans. It has also been confirmed that Vanguard will indeed have a single-player campaign along with Multiplayer as well as the beloved Zombies co-op mode.
Call of Duty Vanguard is currently available for pre-orders and the game is set for release on the PS4,PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC.
Call of Duty Vanguard set for release on November 5, 2021 – New Warzone event also incoming
Call of Duty Vanguard is being built up as one of the most cohesive entries in the series – with seamless integration with Warzone. To that end, Warzone, towards the end of the year, will feature a brand-new map, new gameplay, and new “experiences” probably aligned with Vanguard.
What is perhaps most exciting for multiplayer fans – Call of Duty Vanguard will include more multiplayer maps, with 20 available on Day One than ever before – with more likely to come post-launch. Along with this, Vanguard will also have the “first ever Zombies crossover in Call of Duty history,” said Johanna Faries, General Manager, Call of Duty, Activision. “Warzone fans will also experience a host of exciting new things to come as part of the new launch. We can’t wait to share more soon.”
In the campaign, players will experience the origins of Task Force 141 (led by Cpt Price in COD Modern Warfare (2019) and COD 4 Modern Warfare (2008). The Zombies mode will be developed by Treyarch studios and will provide continuity from a lore standpoint – while innovating on the core gameplay loop.
COD Vanguard Download Size for PC
This has now been updated to say 75GB – 100GB depending on your region. The exact download size doesn't seem to be available yet… I'd imagine the 270GB size is something to do with Warzone. pic.twitter.com/3pf3hIfGHF

The download size for Call of Duty games has recently become a meme – to the point where players have begun to use external storage specifically for Warzone or Black Ops Cold War. Looks like Vanguard might just follow suit as leaker Tom Henderson spotted a 270GB download for Vanguard on PC.
However, the size was updated later to reflect 75-100GB, which probably means Vanguard by itself might be around the 100GB ballpark – which is the standard for most big AAA games today. As of yet, there has been no official word from Activision regarding the download size – but it shouldn’t be long before it is confirmed.
